'A festive Russian folktale about Babushka's journey to Bethlehem to meet a very special baby. Along the way, she gives away all of her gifts, arriving at the stable empty handed. She learns the most important lesson of all, that the more you give away in love, the more you receive. This heart-warming tale has super colourful and quirky illustrations.' --Family Interest Magazine
'Illustrated beautifully, this fable offers an alternative to the traditional Christmas story, and is an interesting way to introduce the children to international perspectives on the festive season. The children should hopefully learn as much along the way as Babushka!' --Five to Eleven
'There is not a speck of dust in Babushka's sparkling clean house. She is so worried about dirt that she can't see the wondrous things happening around her. Then she dreams of a baby born in a dirty stable and sets off with some presents for him but she gives them all away to other people in need on the way. This is a lovely update of an old story, with great illustrations, that contains a valuable message about love.' --BBC Parenting
